Principal's Message

Welcome, Roadrunner Community, to the 2021-2022 School Year!

A lesson I always share with students is that our actions define our character, not our words. Reflecting on last school year, I observed our staff’s and students’ character shine in 20-21! I came to see first-hand the strength, empathy, and determination to persevere. Our community should be proud of our teachers’ and students’ accomplishments and recognize our families’ critical role in education (more than ever). Without the support of all of our families, the experiences might have been different.

Remember, Bell earned the following awards last year: A School to Watch at the National & State level, along with the state determining Bell was a Distinguished School! 

Now let’s all take a deep breath, and let’s Reimagine & Reignite for the 21-22 school year. 

Our GGUSD strategic plan is our focus at Bell to guide our decision-making.

Goal 1: All learners will develop the academic skills necessary for continual individual growth towards mastery of standards. 

Goal 2: All learners will develop the personal skills necessary to achieve educational and social goals.  

Goal 3: All learners will be prepared for lifelong success in their intended career paths. 

Therefore, we will take time to Reimagine & Reignite our systems at Bell that support GGUSD Strategic Plan, and the GOOD news, we will be in person!

I am also excited to give a warm welcome to our four NEW teachers & NEW AP to our Roadrunner team!

  • Libby Cueva as our Math/Spanish/English teacher
  • Kamilyn Zajec as our MM/RSP (SPED) teacher
  • David Martyn as our Instrumental teacher (3 periods)
  • Kristen Fawley as our Choir teacher (1 period)
  • Anna Seo as our new Assistant Principal

As your principal, I am excited to welcome our community to another school year. Our goal as educators at Bell is to support ALL students academically and socially. We will make every effort, so all students graduate as successful and literate members of society and succeed in the increasingly complex world in which they will live and work. We encourage all students to be responsible and self-reliant and set high goals for themselves as they reach their dreams. We are a thriving school because of the great work of our students, staff, parents, volunteers, and community members. We have built a solid foundation and now continue to add layers of quality to our school. We will focus on growing our good school climate and atmosphere to ensure that all students, every day, have a positive learning experience.

Warm wishes for a school year filled with blessings!
